Maybe a 1990 show with a 5 star rating will change that.

Brent on his way out . Sad . But a strong show . A Bird Song, a Scarlet-Fire Real interesting post drums (the area with the least variety in later day GD), with Crazy Fingers in the "Jerry ballad spot" . Love when they would bother to bring back the "Playing" reprise .

From Jerry in RS: "See, it's like good and evil," Jerry went on, his yellow glasses glinting above his eager smile. "They exist together in their little game, each with its special place and special humors. I dig 'em both. What is life but being conscious? And good and evil are manifestations of consciousness. If you reject one, you're not getting the whole thing that's there to be had. So I had a good time last night. Getting in trouble can be a trip too."

Wow, this all seems rather inappropriate after such a tragedy. Are we all really so desensitized? Or is this the typical "rah rah" guns rule stuff that we always have to suffer through after mass murders like this?

Exactly.

Btw there was some incident where Bob was almost shot during a Fun With Guns sessions. He'd gone to sleep in a chicken shack or something and then people were taking pot shots at it.

Interesting how they had this fascination with cowboys and Indians at the same time as Vietnam -- and so did the hippie culture as a whole. I bet they heard more than once, "How could you do this when people are dying in Vietnam?" So let's see. People can watch the horrors of Vietnam on the tube, and then sing Little Sadie, and then go out and play cowboys and Indians, and then presumably talk about peace and love and changing the world ...

Sorry, but this all seems weirdly light-hearted after such a tragedy. But the larger point is how disgusting it is that the pro-gun crowd always feels the need to rally after something like this happens. I still can't buy a joint, but this nut had no problem buying an assault weapon and thousands of rounds of ammo. Something's wrong there.

Oh yeah, couldn't agree more...if I come off as conflicted, just color me as unable to resist "disengaging" myself from the whole scene (I refuse to be caught up in hand wringing, unproductively at this distance, nor reactionary solution suggestions, ie, more guns). I voiced my thoughts on arming everyone--bad--but then transitioned into light and airy...sorry, my bad; it's what I do "here" as I don't think we can really do anything else right "here"...

@snow_and_rain: I totally agree with your comment.

It seems to be a cycle that just can't be broken.

I'm just glad that I live in a country where there are legal restrictions on weapons.
It's not perfect, but it is the right direction definitely.

From light into ashes:

"The year is 1970. The other two guys are Ray Slade(Dead hanger-on. Member of the Family. Or, as Sam Cutler put it, member of the Dead's "Pleasure Crew".)& Sam Cutler. The guy with back to the camera is Peter Coyote.

I have no idea who the guy behind Coyote(facing the camera) is

Clearly some people didn't get the memo about camo.

With sartorial choices like these, I'm thinking "hurts my eyes to listen" might be the original lyrics ...
